Local nightlife historian David Enos takes a look back at happier times:
Edinburgh Castle, 2010. There used to be many “hot spots” in town. Uptown, El Rio, Hemlock, Elbo Room, Make-Out Room, Latin American, the Knockout. You usually walked in and spotted several friends right away, or people you had seen around, wanted to meet, and were soon having drinks with. A few years later it is an entirely remade city. Everywhere is crammed full of unremarkable strangers. [link]
I feel the same way sometimes. But maybe it’s just that David and I are in our 30s now and our friends are married and boring or moved to New York (or both), and we’re too old to try to meet new people. I dunno.
Mostly I just love this picture.
